Directly from Webasto on EVSolutions.com, TurboCord 240V EVSE $199 + Tax (at least in CA) with free UPS ground.

SPECIFICATIONS:

20ft charging cable
16A @ 240V
Circuit breaker – 20A @240/208VAC
UL, cUL listed
NEMA 6-20 plug


These typically are $300-500. A niche product, but if you are looking for an EVSE with a 6-20 plug, this is probably the best one on the market. Charges at about 9-15 mph.

Also available at this price on Amazon.

This is actually a good deal. BMW sells this rebranded under their name as a $500 option on their plug-in electric cars.

16A... charging, The typical 120v outlet gives you 12A. This will give you roughly 9 miles per hour?

This is a 240/208V charger with a max power of 3.6kW. The math for my Bolt EV with a 60 kWHr battery and a 240 mile range comes out to 14 mph on a nice day. You need a 240V (or 208V) socket to use it.

My OEM 120V (1.3kW) charger charges at something like 4.5 mph.

I purchased this at the sale price, it's probably the best value out there for most PHEV owners given the 16amp rating of it. The toughest part is finding a nema 6-20 receptacle if you're doing the 240v outlet yourself but otherwise it's perfect.

Right NEMA 6-20... Fixed it. I'm in the process of replacing a detached garage and am running a 12/3 line out to the side of my house where I can charge my car temporarily. So this works perfectly for this.

Also, lots of new home builds have ready wiring for 240/208 car chargers in garages, but only 12 AWG wires, so a 6-20 receptical charger is the easiest code friendly way of doing this.

The OEM EVSE is 240V capable: https://www.chevybolt.org/forum/8...utlet.html

I know but I wouldn't trust my charger with an adapter in a semi-permanent setup in a wet location. This unit will fit under some of the larger wet socket covers.

Keep in mind that per code any exterior outlets are required to be gfi. I don't even know if a gfi nema 6-20r exists so you'll have to purchase a gfi breaker and those suckers can be pricey. Just some things to consider although for most PHEVs this is still a fantastic deal. As for modifying your OEM 120v evse...........pretty risky idea. Think long term insurance claims if something goes wrong, even risking life over a very high quality $200 evse which is intended to charge at 240v. Even to have a nema 6-20 receptacle wired per code on the exterior of your house, an honest, knowledgeable electrician should be very reasonable.
